Sleep disorders are a common ailment, so if you've been tossing and turning a lot at night it may comfort you, even if slightly, to know that you're not alone in your night-time despair. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 70 million adults suffer from chronic sleep problems in the United States and 40% of all American women have had a sleeping disorder at one point of their lives.
Sleep and Insomnia
Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D.
